My husband and I went on a Wednesday and were a little surprised at how few people were in the theater. We almost second guessed our show pick....until they started performing. They were amazing!!!!!!! Not only did they put us in awe, they also made us laugh about halfway thru with the juggling performance. They were fantastic and I would highly recommend anyone to go see Acrobats of China.

Awesome performance. We were throughly entertained the entire time. The theater is easy to get to and has plenty of parking. We bought our tickets early that morning at their box office that opened at 9:00am. If you are a vet make sure you ask for that discount.
